An official manga adaptation of the movie Pokémon: Mewtwo Strikes Back—Evolution, previously only available in Japan, has now launched in the west.
128 pages long, the book retells the story of Mewtwo and how it was created by a team of researchers based on the fossil of the Mythical Pokémon, Mew. As you’d expect, it closely follows the event of the film:
Intended as a tool of destruction, Mewtwo becomes aware of its human creators’ plans and seeks revenge. When Ash, Pikachu, and their friends find themselves in the center of the conflict, our heroes must battle to overcome Mewtwo’s challenge. Only by working together can they save the world of Pokémon and help Mewtwo discover a new meaning for its existence.
